The Summoning - Lilith Likes to Watch Halloween Trick & Treat IV

Last October, we were in the midst of our Halloween Trick & Treat III when the world of internet porn was rocked by a seething, willfully obtuse Op-ed. With PornHub cleaning house, other tube sites following their lead, credit card companies shutting sex workers out, and the pandemic still going on, we became demoralized. That year, I promised a very special video, and we failed to see it through. Our final video was for Underworld. Halloween Trick & Treat III was left incomplete.

This year, I am doing what I am able to make it up to you all. Instead of a review every 2 weeks, we will be posting a review every single Tuesday for the month of October, and will conclude with a very special Double Feature. Be sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram if you want to be notified as soon as possible.

Now, without further ado, Lilith Likes to Watch proudly presents Halloween Trick & Treat IV!

"You know how much this shit turns me on."

Have you ever watched something so bad your brain just shuts off? That’s The Summoning. I was so disappointed because this was a case of judging a book by its cover. Abigail Mac holding a statue of Baphomet? Yes please. I am a Baphomet fangirl. 
The opening credit sequence was kind of inventive and there was a nice aerial shot of two people fucking in a pentagram that had fun lighting and the bodies were in near perfect symmetry. And then you look to the left of the screen and see a crew member carrying one of the lighting rigs. Once more on the subject of set design, the pentagram was wobbly and wonky as fuck and I highly doubt Satan appreciates LED lights. Of course, for porn purposes, safety first, but during the lackluster Satanic ceremony, couldn’t the production designer shell out for actual candles? 
Abigail Mac doesn’t even rub the little Baphomet figurine on her chest or grind on it or anything. A total waste. Even the priestess in Ed Wood’s film Necromania rubbed a skull against her tits and it was the highlight of that film. 

The casting was all wrong. No one was believable. I like Abigail Mac, and she’s a chameleon, completely disappearing in roles but I didn’t buy her as a bubbly co-ed Satanist, nor that she would be friends with this group of people. Seth Gamble, who was great in Perspective, has the uninspired dialog of “Oh fuck Oh Shit Oh God” during sex. Xander Corvus was having fun as Satan and the scene between him and Abigail Mac was fine. The sex scene between the innocent virgin and the succubus was where I finally realized this film was very low tier. 
Other than that one aerial shot, this movie was ugly. I don’t know if the cameras were too low quality or too high quality, I’m not a tech person, but the cameras picked up every grimy bit of dirt. Every blemish, and it was far from alluring. The camera work was boring, especially during the final sex scene.  

This was a waste of good talent and a good idea and spits in the name of Baphomet. Hard pass. 

Best Moment: The opening credits. I still had hope, then. 

Worst Moment: The wasted potential. This could have been great. 

LILITH'S SCORE: 1/5 - It's a Halloween Trick.

Until next time, my voracious voyeurs. I’m Lilith, and I’m always watching.
